West Place Animal Sanctuary rescued a horse that was very dear to me. Since he was rescued, his quality of life has increased greatly. He came from a rocky and dusty paddock and now thrives in a field of tall green grass. He was always alone and now lives with another horse and an assortment of cows, goats, ducks, and the most BEAUTIFUL swans. To see him standing beside a swan, a greyhound and a bunch of ducks is a very funny sight. Each time I visit, I am amazed at the personal attention and care that each animal receives. Before coming to West Place Animal Sanctuary this horse suffered from a long and painful illness involving his two front feet. He wore shoes that were heavy and thickly padded and caused him to trip frequently. He spent so many hours laying down in his paddock that people passing by would stop to offer help. Now, after receiving awesome veterinary care he stands for as long as he likes AND stands barefoot! As a community, our lives are richer, more humble, and compassionate by the examples set by West Place Animal Sanctuary.
